Ok, so this is not strictly food, but I thought I’d write a little about my experience at Oktoberfest. It ran over three days at the start of October in the Sikh Leisure Centre.
I’ve never been a big ale drinker, but recently, I am starting a voyage of discovery. I like IPA, I like porters and there aren’t that many ales that I dislike. So when I saw the Oktoberfest in Huddersfield I thought I’d go along.
We went on Friday as we’d been told Saturday could be quite busy. Entry cost £10 for non Camra members which included a £5 beer token and a £2 refundable glass deposit. There were over 90 ales to choose from and 60 ciders. Being spoilt for choice I decided to take my pick of porters. My favourite on the day was the locally brewed Sup Porter.
The price of drinks varied, depending on the strength and when your beer token ran out you just bought another card. We spent about 3 hours there and it cost us £15.
We chose to keep our glasses and we’ll definitely be back again next year to try a few more ales.
